. and a conservative america. there is the united states of america. >> obama gave the speech, the keynote, 2004, four years later, he's president. does this lie ahead for julian castro? >> he lived in illinois. i live in texas. it's one of the reddest states in the whole nation. >> reporter: there are ghosts in this convention center for anyone delivering the keynote. ghosts of surgery,ful and unsuccessful keynotes gone by. >> my fellow democrats. >> reporter: in 1988, the keynote by bill clinton at the dnc was widely jeered and almost derailed his career. and yet, four years later, clinton was elected president. but there are plenty of speakers no one remembers. julian castro feels the pressure. why did obama pick you? >> i think that he and i see eye to eye on a lot of issues. i also think it's another signifier of the significance of h himself pan hispanics. >> reporter: his mother immigrated to the country, his brother joaquin is now running for congress. he's expected to win. tonight, he introduced julian. >> ours is a nation like no other. a place where great journeys can be made in a single ge

in the united states, but around the world. >> four years into a presidency examine it's incomplete? the president is asking people just to be patient with him? look, charlie, the kind of recession we had, we should be bouncing out of it, creating jobs. we're not creating jobs at near the pace we could. >> shep: before today's back and forth, our latest fox news poll showed governor romney and congressman paul ryan leading the president and vice president by two points when it comes to the economy. of course, that is a statistical tie. let's get things started with team fox coverage. carl cameron, campaign guy, live in vermont with governor romney. and ed henry live here. obama campaign staffers are saying the incomplete comment isn't really anything new at all. >> that's because you're right. he has said this before, when interviewers asked him. what they're not mentioning is that after his first year in office, oprah winfrey asked him this question and at that time, the president did not say incomplete. he said he deserved a b plus and said if he passed health care reform valley,
that open new plants and train new workers right here in the united states of america we can reward those companies that build right here and double their exports. we can create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. you can make that happen. >> i want to create a future where everyone who wants a job can find a job. where no senior figures for their security of their retirement and every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads to a good job and a bright horizon. and unlike the president, i have a plan to create 12 million new jobs. host: has either campaign in specific on how they plan to create 1 million new jobs? politics is not my area, but from what i have followed i have not seen at all specifically this is going to happen. its romney's plan, one of five. is to reduce the deficit. but it is not clear how it leads to more jobs in a direct way. obviously, overall, a strong quake -- stronger economy and reduced debt leads to a better economic environment. but as you cut contractors, teachers, whatever -- anytime government is cutting spending, c
barack obama president of the united states of america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. everyone here is waiting to hear what bill clinton will say about president obama tonight as well as his own time in the white house. but another speech tonight could make or break the democrats' hope for keeping control of the united states senate. elizabeth warren is challenging republican senator scott brown in massachusetts. coming up in this hour, we'll hear praise of bill clinton from someone you might not expect. >> coming from the republicans, vice presidential candidate paul ryan sat down with cnn's piers morgan to compare the clinton and obama presidencies. the two presidents have not always been close, obviously. our chief national correspondent john king covered the clinton white house for us. >> these two presidents, the former president and president obama are more than at peace now. you may say both men share a little bit of numbers
privilege as far as being a citizen of the united states to vote and be part of the process. that is all i have to say. host: frank newport, it sounded like from the comments last night by mitt romney that they were really focusing on from here on out approaching voters who had voted for obama in 2008 and looking to lure them to the romney campaign. is there any way that gallup will be checking that attempt? guest: absolutely straight -- absolutely. we track daily. for a republican to win, they have to pull back in some of those voters. if the same scenario happens this year that unfolded in 2008, obama is going to win again. republicans have two goals -- one is to activate the core republican voters and get them to turn out, which is easier for republicans and democrats, because republicans are more likely to vote. they have characteristics like age and education that make them more likely to vote. the second task is to pull down at 7% margin that obama had over mccain, so they have to come in to become a convert some of those people who went for obama to go to romney, or they were going

,000 people and the president of the united states who want that speech to go off with sunny skies at that hour of the day, star-filled skies at any rate. in the next hour we'll be joined by two very important leaders in the united states congress, congressman elijah cummings and congressman chris van hollen both from the state of maryland. right now we joined by key delegate congress woman degette. good to have you with us. >> it's great being here. >> bill: your presence and your colleagues next hour reminds us that a lot of what the president wants to accomplish cannot be accomplished unless he has a democratic congress. >> that's right. a lot of the accomplishments we were talking about yesterday were achieved when it was democratic congress. after that it was the party of no. the republicans wouldn't even honor the [ inaudible ] of the united states. so a lot of us are saying, if you like what you're hearing, if you really think we need to move this country forward, then you need to elect 25 more democrats to the house, so we can keep the majority back and we
in the last years of military rule, united states sanctions were blamed for all the economic ills of burma. not just the economic ills but other ills as well, and there is great eagerness for these sanctions to be removed. on my part i do not think we need to cling on to sanctions unnecessarily, because i want our people to be responsible for their own destiny and not to depend too much on external props. we will need external help, we will need the help of our friends abroad, from all over the world, but in the end we have to build our own democracy for ourselves. and we would like u.s.-burma relations to be founded firmly on the recognition of the need for our own people to be accountable for their own destiny. we need the kind of help that has been given to us by the united states historically in the fields of education and health and the fields of humanitarian aid. our education system is in a shambles. many of our people are barely educated. 15% of our children do not go to school at all, and of the rest hardly 20% make it through high school. so burma's educational system is in dire
between the united states and iran. americans repeatedly said that the iranian government must change, and -- change behavior. >> translator: sure, but after all, what does that mean. can one country based on their own sole opinion decide and establish a redline for another country and then offer attacks. we have never threatenned them. >> you said you wanted to wipe them from the face of the earth. >> translator: let me explain, we think occupation and war-like behavior and terrorism should be done away with. the killing of women and children should be done away with. the bombardment of houses on people's heads in their own countries should be done away with. have they done anything like this in the last 65 years? no they event. we say to do away with these things. and we have also suggested the solution. we said that the solution is that the palestinian people should decide in a free election for their own country for their own land. >> the last time i had a conversation with you, here, a year ago were after the conversation, you talked in a reasonable way in part about things, and
two oil producing state in the united states. they just announced they have 42 times, not 42%, natural gas in ohio as they thought they did a year ago. i mean, just the drive of the energy sector under a romney administration generates in royalties, in taxes on new jobs and taxes on profits a major step towards the balanced budget. now you've got to control spending. paul ryan would be about as good a vice president as you could get if you wanted to have somebody. i mean, he will know more about the budget than the director of the budget. >> quick comment, and then i've got to go to a break. >> i'm all for exploiting our natural gas. it's incredible bounty. but if we don't do it as a bridge to a cleaner energy future we're going to burn up, choke up, heat up, smoke up and melt up this planet. far faster than even al gore predicts. >> all right. we're going to take a break here. i want to come back and talk a little bit about a big issue as we go into the democratic convention. gender politics. it was certainly big for the republicans. it will be big for the democrats as well. our polit

of the united states. and so the enthusiasm and the passion was there. inside the room. it's a bigger convention as other folks have pointed out. there was more energy in the room to begin with. then you had these great speakers and nobody was really saying look at me, i'm going to be the next president of the united states. at least not yet. >> julian castro i thought made a real bid to be the first latino, potentially, president of the united states. >> there's no question there will be a lot of talk here about 2016. >> not yet. >> the main focus is on 2012 without a doubt. democrats were not mistake free today. their platform does not mention god. they changed that from four years ago. israel, jerusalem is the capital and israel is our strongest ally. a lot of people are going to scratch their head. why would you make those changes? we're trying to get answers on that. >> i also can't understand, why would you remove the word god? why would you deliberately allow the republicans to come in and go to all their base and say, look at this guy. he's removed the word god. >> we don't know the answ
including united states. i think there is a strong platform talking about the relationship. >> would you agree it's fun to hear the first lady of the united states speak? and tonight is no different? >> sorry? what? >> i say it's always fun to hear the first lady of the united states speak. and tonight is no different. fun to hear from whether mrs. bush or mrs. obama. it's fun for everybody. >> absolutely. because you get to hear the personal stuff. you get to go inside of the white house and go up to the second floor of the white house where the family lives and learn a little bit more about the family. i think it's great having three daughters they do everything possible to make sure their daughters have a live of their own. so it's a fabulous speech. she hit a home run. we ran up the score on this one. and we still have tomorrow and thursday to go. so it's been a great convention so far. >> congressman, thank you sir. >> thank you very much. >> and coming up utah congressman and republican jason chaffin. why is he here tonight? well, he is hear to tell you next the g.o.p. possibly mad

[ applause ] he did it because he believes that here in america our grandparents should be able to afford their medicine. our kids should be able to see a doctor when they're sick and no one in this country should ever go broke because of an accident or an illness. and he believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care. that's what my husband stands for.

lady of the united states. she's here at the time warner cable arena. she's now at the podium the right there. you can see she's getting instructions, trying to begin to get a little feel for that stage up there. the teleprompter that will eventually be there. she's going to deliver a major address here, obviously, in charlotte at the democratic national convention tomorrow night. that's what the first lady will be doing. she's been here now, i'm guessing for at least 45 minutes to an hour. she was up in the sky boxes walking around, doing some television interviews, and just beginning to get a flavor for what's going on. this will be a very important address. she's very popular out there. has high, high approval and favorability numbers. there's no doubt about that. and she's going to be under enormous pressure to deliver that big speech tomorrow night. we're here in "the situation room" watching everything that's going on. gloria borger is here. brianna keilar is here. as we see the first lady, this is normal. everybody does this. all the big speakers, at some point, they come in here
homeland for the jewish people, by reelecting barack obama as president of the united states. thank you very much. ♪ >> please welcome the mayor of minneapolis, minn.. >> hello, minnesota. [applause] >> it is cold, we have to cheer about something, right? it was a cold, december morning four and a half years ago we told -- we pulled our rental of college students into iowa. we went door to door, for a guy named barack obama. almost nobody in town had ever heard of him. they asked some pretty tough questions. would he stand up for the middle-class? for people like them, not just for those at the very top. they asked us, would he get us out of this mess at -- in iraq? and did he have the guts to take on the insurance companies and reform health care? conversations like this were taking place all over iowa. iowans know the real bill when you see it. they took the measure of this man. they looked him in the eye and you sent him on to be president of the united states. thank you, iowa, for that. a lot has happened since then, and we still have a long, long way to go, but today we can go ba
opposition. overseas president obama restored the reputation of the united states within the community. dialling a and collaboration are once again possible with the return of spirit and trust and good will to our foreign policy. of course, there remains much to do. communities across america and countries around the world, life is too hard for too many people. we see their struggle and also our hearts go out to them. in the coming years our hands must continue to reach out to them. after all that remains to be done and at home and abroad, the evidence is overwhelming. president obama is a leader for america and we faison slaught of some of the most complicated and international challenges to confront any u.s. president in modern times. it is up to all of us to make sure that the american people understand exactly what is at stake. and at risk in this election. with president obama in oval office we can make good progress towards becoming a fairer, stronger, more prosperous america. and a nation adjusted to changing and challenging times, hold it true to unchanging principles. a leader
last week made no mention of military service members or the war the united states is still fighting in afghanistan. it's a point that tammy duckworth, a war-wounded veteran and illinois candidate for the house of representatives did not miss. >> when it comes to our men and women in harm's way, we have a clear choice on november 6th. last week mitt romney had a chance to show his support for the brave men and women he is seeking to command, but he chose to criticize president obama instead of even uttering the word afghanistan. >> and then there was one card the republicans kept so close to the vest that we never saw or heard any mention of it. it was as if their last two-term president never existed. maybe george w. bush was the invisible guy in the chair, but there was no missing the democrats last two-term president on wednesday night. if there was any card bill clinton was holding, it had to be a spade because he dug right into the accomplishments of the obama administration with a 49-minute workhorse, or donkey, of a speech. in fact, the new york giants could have taken some no
. tonight this was it's going to behe renomination of a sitting president of the united states. and so, the enthusiasm and the passion was there inside the room. it's a bigger convention as other folks have pointed out. there was more information in the room to begin with and then you had these great speakers and nobody was really saying look at me, i'm going to be the next president of the united states. at least not yet. >> there is no question there will be a lot of talk here about 2014 but the main focus is on 2012. the dpems were not mistake free. their platform does not mention god. their platform changes language about israel. juz lem is the capital and israel is our strongest ally. a lot of people would wonder why you're making the changes. it's the same candidate. we're trying to get answers on that. >> why would you also remove the word god? why would you deliberately allow the republicans to come in and go to all of their base and say look at this guy? he has removed the word god. >> somebody made a mistake and somebody or somebodies in the campaign didn't catch it. in terms
will man, in you say one member of congress is equal to the president of the united states --. >>guest: he did not vote for those? >> he put out a budget and passion add budget that achieves balance and this president has not gotten one vote for a budget. >> that is not true. >>shepard: to make budget we have to get commercials in. i don't like them but we love our sponsors the guys, have a good time and enjoy yourselves. >>shepard: when the camera is not on they seem to like each other. well be right back the bottom of the hour and the top of the news coming up from the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. >>shepard: i am shepard smith. this is "studio b" at the bottom of the hour in charlotte, north carolina. crews are tearing down the stage at the football stadium. organizers say the threat of severe wet tomorrow forced them to move the move indoors. he will be here, inside this building on the main convention stage. it has the protection of a roof but about 50,000 fewer seats than the stadium. that means some folk whose had tickets to see the speech need to make
're the first lady of the united states, you have a bevy of dresses designed for you, and that is no different for ann romney, but that plays into the narrative, so that's why you see the focus on it. it's a down time in the economy, and it is an attempt, again, to suggest that the romneys are out of touch with middle class americans, which that will be up to the american people to decide, but i think that story plays into that narrative. >> i want to button this up with something else we see so prevalently in this day and age is digital media. the number of tweets that were rolling in per minute when it came to michelle obama. 28,000 tweets per minute while she was speaking. she's not even the candidate. look how it compared to the left. mitt romney's measurement was only 14,000 tweets per minute. but let's finish it this way by saying, as you said, she's not running. she may have an effect but she's not running. important to note that. >> and she's also the first lady of the united states, and she's been in a very prominent role for five years now, so let's -- you know, i think balance it by
